john mccain supported president obama's action to oust moammar khadafy and the president's steps taken since then. i spoke to senator mccain earlier today. senator mccain, a source familiar with the ambassador's thinking toll us in the months before his death he talked about being worried about the never-ending security threats in bengha benghazi, the threats he was facing and growing al qaeda presence and mentioned being on an al qaeda hit list. and he said in june to a journalist, maybe you should head east to benghazi to the situation there which appears the be heating up. given what we are learning about the concerns that he had, does it make sense to you the small level of security that he apparently had with him? >> it doesn't make any sense. and i'll tell you what else doesn't make any sense, the white house spokesman, secretary of state and ambassador to the u.n. stating categorically that it was not a terrorist attack when obviously it had all the earmarks of a terrorist attack, including rocket-propelled grenades, heavy weapons an a well carried out military operation. and wh
ambassador leave the country of iraq. that president obama make a televised apology for the movie that some say sparked protests out there. bill: in afghanistan signs that the drawdown is well underway. the military is trying to move thousands of vehicles and tons of equipment out of the country, a difficult task due to the land-locked location and rough terrain. our troops are spending hours readying equipment for the long journey. >> i'm glad to get rid of it. it's a lot of stuff. it is a lot of stuff to keep accountability of. i have great officers and ncos who help me do that. it is nice to finally start making the process. bill: there are 23,000 marines and soldiers also departing afghanistan this year. leaving about 68,000 americans still fighting the war in that country. martha: all right. let's swing back now to the issue of the economy which is a big one of course in this election. number of americans seeking unemployment benefits last week dropped slightly 382,000. that is sign economists say that highering remains very weak. that number needs to be under 350,000 to show meaningfu
in that part of libya than tripoli. >> previously you mentioned people from the obama administration said they felt this wasn't a planned attack, an offshoot of this video. but the director of the national counterterrorism center said at a hearing today, attack in benghazi was "a terrorist attack." he didn't specify if it was preplanned or not. it goes beyond what we've heard before. how significant is that? >> i think it's significant that the secretary of the united nations would go on our networks and tell people things that are absolutely false and fly in the face of the facts. i think maybe the american people are owed an apology. but the most important thing is that we have to understand that this video was not the cause of it. the cause of it was islamists who use these videos in order to inflame these people, in order to attack america. i mean, anderson, i'm confident right now there, are people making videos, just as a french cartoonist made cartoons, are making videos right now. we should stand up to freedom of speech and we'll defend people to speak out, rather than condemn hat

was talking to. president obama has a whopping 40-point lead among latino voters. did romney do anything last night that would put a dent in that? >> i don't know if he's going to put a dent in it. i don't think it's a one-night approach or one-night solution type of thing. he has been doing a lot of things this week. he had the speech in front of the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. he had a big interview with telemundo, this candidate forum and more than that, he has begun to spend millions of dollars on spanish ads in hispanic tv. we'll have to see if it works. i hope it's not too little too late. it's very important for the latino community that we not be taken for granted by one party and ignored by the other. the best thing that could happen to us is that both candidates fight hard to earn our votes and to really court us. >> i know you called romney's trip latino paloosa. i like that. and he is sort of going on that, right? >> you're right. >> he did talk about immigration and he seemed to soften his stance. tell me about that. >> he definitely softened his tone. we've now gone from
favors president obama in the polls as well. late night rally in miami, romney told the audience that economic policies will be better for hispanics. he is trying to distance himself from the fund-raiser comments, dismissing 47% of voters. new polls suggest they might not be so damaging after all. among registered voters, 20% say they're more likely to vote for romney because of it. 36% are less likely. 43% say his remarks make absolutely no difference. even more important here, among independents, 15% say they're more likely to vote for romney, 29% less likely, 53% say it makes absolutely no difference. at a forum on univision, he struck an exclusive tone. >> this is a campaign about the 100%. over the last several years, you've seen greater and greater divisiveness in this country. we had hoped to come back together. instead, you've seen us pull apart and politics has driven us apart in some respects. so my campaign is about the 100% in america. i'm concerned about that. i'm concerned about the fact that over the past four years life has become harder for americans. more people

nominated by president obama to be our ambassador to iraq. and i think all of us on the committee are pleased the president has nominated somebody of high caliber, great experience, who is our defense server vanessa the deputy chief of mission in baghdad for the year and previously served as ambassador to jordan and executive assistant to secretary of state, colin powell and condoleezza rice. while america's war has ended in iraq, the struggle for iraq's future obviously has not ended. the violence is down, but al qaeda and iraq remains a very deadly foe and iraq may not capture the jays today headlined. then no one should make the mistake to somehow come to a conclusion that iraq doesn't present extraordinary challenges. this administration has worked tirelessly to ensure that it doesn't become a forgotten front. we put in place a road mac on a browser to have issues. political, economic, educational, scientific and military. our bilateral partnership has potential to contribute, we believe to the stability in the middle east. but iraqi leaders have to decide for themselves what
on this floor many times criticizing the obama administration but the obama cradmrgs through secretary salazar and the department of the interior is in favor of legislation that does what this bill and the senate bill hope to do. while i have differences with them, i certainly congratulate them for recognizing how important this legislation is. so with that, mr. speaker, i urge adoption of the legislation and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the question is, will the house suspend the rules and pass h.r. 5987 as amended? those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, 2/3's being in the affirmative, the rules are suspended -- mr. kucinich: mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from ohio rise? mr. kucinich: i ask for a recorded vote. the speaker pro tempore: the yeas and nays are requested. those in favor of taking this vote by the yeas and nays will rise and remain standing until counted. a sufficient number having risen, the yeas and nays are ordered. pursuant to clause 8 of rul
that the obama administration should set clear red lines regarding the nuclear program, if so, what you think the red lines should be? [laughter] >> i would believe if you go back and look at the president's prenounsment on the issue, back even in 2009, you can see he was very clear in terms of the national purpose and the national goal. to my knowledge, that hasn't changed. but and i think our policy is informed by pretty good intelligence, and that it's quite possible that the sanctions -- first of all, i think the sanctions are in fact i think they cause the regime to come back to the iea, notice a country like turkey, for example, and originally in 2010 really was championing the right-hand side position is now seen little bit [inaudible] i think you have to be careful how you articulate where your red lines are. there's no question in my mind what our policy is. and there's no question in my mind that a nuclear weapons capable the iran is a clear danger to the neighbors they said so. it's a country that would probably trigger a nuclear arms race in the middle east. and that's a country t
